Giving financially is an expression of worship and a normal part of our love for God.
At Oak Grove, we aim to worship God in our giving by contributing cheerfully and regularly (see 2 Corinthians 9:6–7) to the support of the ministry, the expenses of the church, the relief of the poor, and the spread of the gospel through all nations, as we strive to honor the Lord with the “firstfruits” (Proverbs 3:9) of all our labor.
What is Giving, or Tithing?
The word “tithe” literally means tenth or 10%. Tithing, or giving ten percent of your income, isn’t merely giving something to God. It’s giving back what is his to begin with as a reminder that God is the supplier of everything, and we are stewards, or managers, of all he has given us. It teaches us to put God first in everything.
We don’t want to pressure anyone into giving who does not yet understand the many expressions of God’s grace, but do want to challenge you to discover how to be faithful in all areas of worship. Be assured that any money given to Oak Grove Church is used in a way to reflect our vision to reach, teach and live out what it means to be a wholehearted follower of Jesus. Your gift you give has an eternal impact.
